Nicholas

As I type this up on Monday morning, the rain is falling in bands now and then, the winds are picking up, the temps are between sauna and bath-house warm. The Tropical Storm, Nicholas, is on its way to Corpus Christi. It's predicted to hit our city around Tuesday morning, early. Like in dark-o-thirty early! Which means, I won't be sleeping tonight! LOL There is a slight possibility of it being a hurricane instead of a T S, but I think it's unlikely. If I'm wrong, that'll be the first time. [:::snort:::] In any case, no doubt, the power will be out for a while [I don't understand why a hurricane prone area such as the Gulf Coast does NOT bury power lines instead of the poles that are always toppling over.] No matter my opinion at the time tho. If I disappear it's because I am conserving the laptop and phone energy for emergencies.

  1. [I don't understand why a hurricane prone area such as the Gulf Coast does NOT bury power lines instead of the poles that are always toppling over.]

    I sooooooooo agree, Anni! It was the same living in Florida, we lost power quite frequently during storms (tropical storms AND hurricanes).

    Sending you lots of positive energy that you don't lose power and remain safe.

    May the force be with you!

    1. Maybe it's the water table?

    2. In florida it is the water table, dig 2 or 3 feet down and get water, easy to dig a well here, but not good water. the closer to the gulf the closer to the water table

    I noted 'Nicholas' since it is the name of my dentist!

    Do hope it turns out to be a wimp. As much as these things can, be wimps. -sigh-

    Understand conserving. But when it's all over, please tell us you are ok.
